Improvements in Employment of Women and the Elderly
[paragraph on women]

Moreover, Chart 2 also shows that employment of the elderly has been growing. However, in the case of the elderly, the share of non-regular employees has been rising. The reason is likely that many are hired as temporary or part-time workers after reaching retirement age. Because Japan's population is aging, this means that it is unlikely that the share of non-regular employees in employment as a whole will decrease. However, looking at employees between 15 and 64 years of age, the share of non-regular employees has been declining since around 2014.

Small note of little importance, the previous translation coincidentally ran into my  嘱託(社員) edit. The workers were probably "RE-hired after reaching (mandatory) retirement age".  

And I found the original source.

I was going to suggest that context probably made things clear. Instead, it looks like this is an official Japanese translation of a Japanese source document that dropped some (perhaps non-critical) nuances.

Add [vs,vi] 

If it were me, I wouldn't have added the GG5 gloss of "reaching retirement age".  It definitely works in some contexts, but this term doesn't mean "turned 65".  It means "turned 65 and had to retire".  In English, I feel like even after saying "After reaching retirement age...", you would *still* have to add "...she left the company (...and started a small business)".  

Take this reverso translation:
"The reason is likely that many are hired as temporary or part-time workers after reaching retirement age."

I feel like the translator lost a step. I think "after mandatory retirement" would have been clearer.

Also, you can "reach retirement age" without being employed. You definitely need a job to 定年退職. (One more reason why the previous translation ends up ambiguous).
